I have been diagnosed with endometriosis and now I have sever rectal pain in my mid cycle. Are they related? Can endometriosis cause rectal pain as well? What is the solution?

Endometriosis: Hi, yes that's very well possible, in patients with Endometriosis due to inflammatory mediators like Prostaglandins the contractility of the bowel can be increased and that can cause rectal spasm and abdominal pain, treating endometriosis with birth control pill should help with these symptoms. Good luck.

I have recently been diagonized with two fibroids 6 cm and 4 cm. I was told that this is the cause for a rectal pain that I have been suffering from for the past few months. Is there anything (apart from tablets) that can relieve the rectal pain?

Removal of fibroids: If the hypothesis that the fibroids cause the pain, because they are located on the posterior wall of the uterus, the only way to relieve the pain would be by removing the fibroids.

Can prostate inflammation or prostate cancer cause rectal pain or recital bleeding?

Can prostate inflammation or prostate cancer cause rectal pain or recital bleeding?

PROSTATITIS EVAL: R/O prostatitis v Epididymitis tough to treat. Hopefully you have seen a urologist recently. Tx with doxycycline. I would recheck labs /UA C&S. & testosterone if no response, cipro (ciprofloxacin) may be needed for 8-10wks. Recheck labs and culture. You also need abdominal/pelvic/prostate US R/O prostate stones. Also switch to gluten free diet Wholeapproach. Com gutbliss. Com Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may also be tried if no change.

Can p.O.P, or enterocele cause rectal pain to be worse and more constant during menstrual cycle? If pertinent, in add. Uterus is also retroverted.

Can p.O.P, or enterocele cause rectal pain to be worse and more constant during menstrual cycle? If pertinent, in add. Uterus is also retroverted.

Maybe.: Usually, pop and enteroceles are painless, but if you have a rectocele and tend towards constipation or harder stools at that time of the month, then there may be more pressure in your pelvis/rectum causing pain. The retroverted uterus is also pushing on the rectum and is lower in your pelvis (pop) which may make stool transit more difficult. What does you doctor think? Have you tried a pessary?

What could be causing my severe rectal pain and bleeding?

What could be causing my severe rectal pain and bleeding?

Anal Fissure common: From this limited detail, I suspect anal fissure. This is the most common cause for this combination of problems, however it is worthwhile to see your colorectal surgeon to make sure it isn't something worse. Start a high fiber and water diet. Use warm water baths. Surgery is curative if conservative measures fail.

Can interstitial cystitis cause sharp shooting vaginal and rectal pain in addition to cramping w/ full bladder? A urologist I knows says "nope". Ic doesn't do that.

Consider workup: While it is possible that ic can cause quite severe pelvic floor pain, you should be seen by a urologist who is familiar with ic. Make sure there is not something else going on to cause your pain, such as endometriosis, infection, abscess, mass.
